Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. It was when I was a kid too. My grandparents would come to our house as would aunts and uncles and cousins. We’d make all of the traditional foods with our family’s traditional spices and cooking methods. It was something that was passed down from generation to generation. Food makes a heart connection. Famous chef Emeril Lagasse calls it a “food of love” connection.
The folks at Hoboken Shelter feel like the meatballs from Mikie Squared Bar and Grill are like home in a mouthful. They say when the meals are delivered by Mike and his team, that a family feel takes over the shelter cafeteria. What a gift! And you can be a part of that!
The sixth grade is kicking off their fundraiser to provide meals to the Hoboken Shelter from Mikie Squared Bar and Grill which is owned by a former member of our Mustard Seed community, the Fasciano/Samaris family. In the past we have raised as much as $3000 and fed the Hoboken Shelter community many times. According to Jacklyn Churabini, the director of the facility, Mikie Squared meals are the community’s favorite.
Please support our fundraising efforts to send meals from Mikie Squared Bar and Grill to the homeless shelter. $10 buys 1 meal. Our goal is to raise $1000. You can make your donation using Venmo @Mikiesquared. Collection begins Monday, November 7 and ends on Thursday, November 17. If you have any questions or need an alternative donation process, email Melissa McCallihan at [email protected].
